World Cup over for Tombides

Dylan Tombides run at the FIFA U-17 World Cup is over after Australia were beaten 4-0 by Uzbekistan in their last-16 contest.

To make matters worse, the West Ham United man was sent off for a challenge just before the hour mark. By then, Australia were two-nil down and the Uzbeks went on to add another couple of goals before the final whistle to advance to the quarter-finals

Although it was a disappointing end for Tombides, the striker had attracted positive notices during the finals in Mexico, notably with a well-taken goal in their 2-1 defeat of Ivory Coast in their opening-group game.

Turgott's club-mate Blair Turgott will hope to go one better than his club-mate this evening when England take on Argentina.
